Current reports suggest a biblical deluge in the early hours of Saturday morning. Why oh why am I camping again this year?

Otherwise maybe a few showers during Sunday.
Don't worry, our tent will keep you dry! Anyway the deluge has now moved to Friday evening - just in time for all the bands on the main stage!

The best that can be said about the weather is that Saturday daytime looks dry.

This may be the first year with the potential for heatstroke.

That said (and it can't really be accurate this far out) BBC weather currently predicts showers will finally arrive on Sunday afternoon, because Indietracks.

At least one person that I know of has had to seek medical attention due to heatstroke at indietracks. It might have been the year Gregory Webster played on the train - I was on that train and remember it being unbearably hot.

2008. I swear it was at least 30 degrees on the Sunday.

The long range forecasts are looking alright actually. A couple of showers but not predicting the shite we had last year.

Don't worry, everyone, the weekend thunderstorms have finally arrived on the forecasts.
